1911

I've got the Springfield Armory PI19132L - full size loaded - great gun.

I have had several over the years - currently, I am w/o one. I am enjoying the 9mm ammo prices being cheaper than 45. So, may be a while before I get another.

Besides, for whatever reason, I shoot a SW99/P99 more accurately than the $1200 TRP I recently had. SO, I may not bother getting another 1911.

I am down to one now. It's my favorite format but ammo prices are a bummer. I might end up trying a 9mm 1911 one of these days..

I have had at least one 1911 for the last 28 years. It is still one of my favorite guns in 45acp. Here is my Gold Cup I bought in 1980 and have customized over the years.

I own one, but it is not my favorite platform. I will be spending some cash on it to get it to where I want it though.

Arguably, the most influential pistol ever made and an American classic.

Here's mine:


Springer Lightweight Loaded with ALuma Grips and "Custom" grip tape job.

I own several 1911's and it is one of my favorite platforms. They are a lot of fun to modify and carry very well.

Well, I really would love a Nighthawk or a Springfield Professional. Before Tripp messed up my Springfield TRP, though, I didn't feel like it was as accurate as past 1911's I had owned, and the TRP was a $1200 gun. So, that kinda tempered me on 1911s too.

:-D I've had about 4 of them and now down to 2, Springfield TRD and a Colt CC. I had a springfield 1911A1 and gave it to my son and a Colt Colt Officers S/S Double Eagle that I gave to my other son. I really like the Colt Combat Commander!
